Just wanted to share my excitement about finally getting a contract and bank transfer forms from Paulina!! I'm taking a quick look at the contract details to make sure everything is accurate and will send her the deposit this week, which officially books her for my date!! Yay!!!

 

For those who have been having difficulty getting a hold of her, she generally takes an average of 4 or 5 days to get back to you, especially if you are sending an email in English, as she only speaks Spanish and has an interpreter to translate everything, including email. If you can write in Spanish or know someone who can, you'll probably get a faster response time. My fiance has been communicating with her in Spanish and we've been having better luck getting responses from her in a more timely manner. Even then, she may take a couple of days because of how busy she is but it'll better your chances. Don't be afraid to send her a friendly follow up email for questions that you haven't received responses for but I would give her a week before each follow-up.

 

I was feeling really anxious about getting her to respond to my email messages before but with some of the input that I've been receiving about what to expect with communication (thanks, Jill!), my worries have been put to rest.

 

....ahhh...photographer checked off the list! Feels great!

Yeah! Yeah! bunny_4.gif
I was thinking of contacting her again, but I don't necessarily have a reason to. I have the contract, but does it feel weird to anyone else to pay someone that lives so far away and have your wedding so far off?....
I keep going on her website and looking at her portfolio. I love it!
Congrats again!

Haha...I know what you mean. I feel like whenever I book a vendor, I have to be in contact with them at least once a month to make sure they haven't forgotten me...haha...probably would be overkill if I did. I look at her website OFTEN too (practically everyday) so I can imagine how great our pics will turn out! Every once in a while, I'll find a couple of new pics intertwined in the existing gallery and also in the intro slide show...gets me even more excited about my choice!

It doesn't feel too weird that I'm paying for things early but sometimes it makes me nervous to pay people that I've never met in person. I'm just glad this forum is here to make me feel secure about the vendors that I hire.

Aww...I'm sorry. I thought i saw some other photographers listed in this forum that are pretty good, although they have a different style. Let me see if I can find a few of them for you. Do you have any others in mind?

Yeah, I did think her prices were reasonable- especially for the quality of her work! she just emailed me a week or two ago just to check in with me. She told me to email her if there were any specific types of photos I like, it was good to hear from her.

Her prices are definitely reasonable considering how beautiful her work is. I've seen some that were less expensive but in those cases, you get what you pay for.

 

I hope she doesn't already have your date booked! I've been excited about having her photograph my wedding from the moment I received the signed contract!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
